In town for the Regatta, we were able to check out a number of other sites for sights during the day.
Throughout downtown there were ‘earths’ painted with messages of making the world a better place.
Flags of the world on the relief of the countries.
A very artistic earth.
Market Square is always busy with something going on.
Meanwhile on the North Shore a large artistic installation graces the riverfront.
I believe that architecture is the most beautiful art form – and functional.
Alcoa Headquarters building.
After we left the Photo Antiquities Museum we came across a festival in a park where they were promotion the protection of animals, including many vegan food options.
There were many artists as well.
But most booths had various animal protection themes.
He needs our help.
The cat rescue group leader.
A novel use for test tubes.
I was tempted to bring home a beagle rescue – but we travel far too much – it wouldn’t be fair to the dog.
Nearby is the Children’s Museum – formerly the Buhl Planetarium – with a nice carved relief.
A series of tubes would occasionally created a fog cloud.
Making our way to the river for the Regatta we passed by the baseball stadium, and the Willie Stargell statue.
As well as Roberto Clemente, along with the bridge they renamed for him.
As we made our way to our seat for the regatta fireworks nature provided one last shot for the day.
